The spice must flow…

Sorry, sci-fi nerd moment. 🙂 It’s not my fault. I had to go there because the new Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics summer collection is called Dune Generation.


While I am unsure if the six-piece collection of $18 Stained Glosses is giant sand worm-approved (virtual fist bump through the monitor if you got that reference), I do see a connection to dunes, desert plains, mirages and otherworldly vacation destinations in the colors.

They have the pigmented punch of an OCC Lip Tar coupled with a glossy finish. Wear them atop your favorite lip products, or alone.

The shades in Dune Generation include…


  • Dune: a champagne gold shimmer
  • Off World: a pearlescent lilac shimmer
  • Hedonist: a neon pastel pink
  • Aurora: a pink-toned coral
  • Concubine: a warm plummy neutral
  • Nomad: a shimmery gold-laced maroon

I’m wearing pinkish coral Aurora in these pics here, and I’m in love! It’s so summery and fun.

Stay tuned for pics of the rest of the six-piece Dune Generation collection over the coming days. 🙂 It’s available now online at sephora.com and occmakeup.com (and coming to Sephora stores June 6).

  4. Look at you, little sex kitten! And I am not talking about Tabs. This pink looks fab on you, but I personally don’t see any hint of coral in it.

  5. Oh I have always wanted to try one of these but somehow never actually gotten around to it. Your photos make me really want to finally bite the bullet and go for it but I want to wait to see all 6 of your days to know which colour I should try!

    The look is very chic and your face is looking very natural, could you elaborate on your face makeup?

    I liked all the shades from this collection but from the swatches I’ve seen I think I like Nomad the best!

    Extra fist bumps for:
    – being Filipino
    – making Dune references
    – having a crush on Kyle Maclachlan because of that movie
    – having a crush on Sting because of that movie

  10. Stephanie says:

    I follow your blog fairly religiously for the awesome makeup content, but now? Dune references? Being a sci-fi nerd too? It’s like… well. It’s such an eye-opener. You really CAN be both sci-fi nerd and into makeup! Makeup isn’t just for some stereotype of women… and I HAVE FOUND MY PEOPLE. So many fistbumps and thank you for this.

  11. Katherine says:

    Hahahaha. I’ve just started to read the book (I’m on a major sci-fi kick at the moment), so this made me giggle. If I enjoy the book, I’ll have to keep an eye out when these come out over here. It sounds like (whether intentional or not), this could be a perfect combination of my two favourite obsessions: makeup and books!

    That is such a fun color! Ummm…I’m just gonna head on over to sephora.com and add it to my cart.

  14. Renee says:

    Extra fist bump for finding a dune collection!
    I am loving this color so SO much right now and I adore OCC so it looks like I’m about to add to my collection!
    You always find more stuff I MUST have damn you! Lol yours is the first email I open every day just to see what excitement you have hidden in there!
    I agree with Stephanie I found my peoples!

  15. Kathy says:

    Thank you for the swatches. The OCC website has 20% off thru today. . . going to make Aurora and Nomad mine!!! Can’t wait to see Concubine.
